    The band has now put its music into the hands of Groove Corporation, 10 Ft. Ganja Plant, Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood, Dubphonic, Liquid Agents, Dubmatix, Dreadzone, Victor Rice, Kalbata, Scientist, Michael G, Border Crossing and J.

    Easy Star's Thrillah

    Following up on the hugely successful reggae tribute albums of Dub Side of the Moon (2003), Radiodread (2006) and Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band (2009) comes the reggae adaptation of the greatest selling record of all time - Michael Jackson's Thriller. The album, titled Easy Star's Thrillah will be released August 28, 2012 (a day before the 53rd anniversary of Jackson's birth). Easy Star's Thrillah brings back several of the reggae stars from previous albums, such as vocalists Michael Rose (Black Uhuru), Steel Pulse, Luciano, Mojo Morgan (Morgan Heritage), alongside the diverse playing of guests Yossi Fine (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Stanley Jordan), Joe Tomino (Dub Trio/Matisyahu), Andy Farag (Umphrey's McGee), and horn tracks courtesy of Israel's highly-acclaimed funk/hip-hop band Hadag Nachash. The album will be preceded by the July 10th digital release of the Billie Jean EP, which includes two album tracks, along with non-album remixes and a dub version.


    In selecting Thriller, Easy Star Records co-founder Lem Oppenheimer says, We've always tackled the greats - The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead - but while we wanted to take on another huge album, we also wanted to blaze new trails. In Thriller we found those new trails in a number of firsts for the series: the first album by an American artist, the first non-concept album, the first R&B/soul record, as well as the first release from the 80s.


    For me, I was most excited for Thriller, says producer/arranger/guitarist Michael Goldwasser. I was always more of an R&B/soul and reggae kid growing up and I have an intense personal connection to Michael Jackson's music. As usual, the process initially involved Goldwasser spending a few months on arranging the songs. Writing the arrangements for this album was a cool challenge. I didn't have to try to make non-dance music into dance music as on our previous albums because the original Thriller is so danceable already, but I needed to find ways to make each song groove in a different way from the original version. I didn't want any of the arrangements to be obvious in that regard. In the end, Goldwasser's arrangements are some of the most interesting in his career.


    Now that the hard work in the studio is done, the band is looking forward to bringing this music on the road, adding some dance/pop songs to their already varied sets. The band's live show, which was nominated for a UK Festy Award in 2009, already features tracks from the band's previous three tribute albums, along with original material. An extensive fall tour of the US and UK is already set up (US dates listed below), with more to come over the next year. As the original Thriller album comes up on its 30-year anniversary in November, what better way to celebrate this timeless album than to catch the Easy Star All-Stars perform their reggae-infused versions of this pop masterpiece.

    Double Star

    Limited Edition



    Just ten years ago, Rick Rizzo and Tara Key put the finishing touches on their Thrill Jockey debut, Dark Edson Tiger, did a few live shows including All Tomorrow's Parties at Camber Sands, and jubilantly declared the whole affair a rousing success, vowing to ride the tsunami swell of momentum into their next project.



    And now, in a Van Winkle like-daze, they are back, a new batch of instrumental collaborations ready to test the brave new decade. It would be easy to say that they simply wanted to wait out the debacle of poor government and unmitigated corporate greed, but truth be told, the seeds for Double Star were sown in early live New York City sessions with bassist Tim Harris not long after the Dark Edson dust had settled. These let-the-tape-roll sessions produced some of the guitar psychedelia that long-time observers might have expected from these two, including the epic tracks that now comprise Noisy Attic as well as the genesis of Interruptive Organ.



    The DNA for this album of course lies in their respective Kentucky punk rock roots, but a lot of living has been done between then and now. Double Star is a barrel-aged kind of record, sometimes inviting small fragrant sips, but sometimes asking you to knock one back and burn the throat a little. Worth waiting a decade for.

    Count Me In (Awaiting Repress)

    For the SoCal-based band's fourth full-length independent release, Rebelution has aimed to instill a sense of community, choosing the phrase "Count Me In" as the album's title, representing each member's strong belief in a sense of community and collaboration. "Over the past ten years as an independent band," vocalist/guitarist Eric Rachmany explained, " we have felt a strong connection to the many people who have been incredibly supportive, and could not be more thankful to be a part of such a like-minded, positive and inspiring community."


    Released through Rebelution's own label, 87 Music, in partnership with Easy Star Records. Count Me In was recorded between September and December of 2013 in Miami at Inner Cirlce's Circle House Studios and in Burbank, CA at Steakhouse Studios. To mix and master the new album, Rebelution was fortunate enough to work with Grammy Award winning Bernie Grundman Mastering and Legendary Reggae producer/sound engineer Errol Brown, Rebelution's touring engineer and a man who helped shape the Treasure Isle sound before working with Bob Marley & The Wailers at Tuff Gong Studios.


    "From writing these songs to mixing and mastering the album, we were involved in every step We're becoming comfortable expressing ourselves, both in the studio and on stage. This album was truly fun to make, it's an honest expression of who we are" revealed Rachmany, and while much of the production was done by the band independently, Rebelution utilized the Reggae-Rock community whole-heartedly to create Count Me In.


    The album features special guest appearances, one by dancehall singer Collie Buddz on the track "Hate To Be The One" and legendary Roots-Reggae vocalist Don Carlos on "Roots Reggae Music". Both collaborations are special pairings for the band as Buddz has toured with Rebelution in the recent past, and Carlos has been an enormous vocal influence on Rachmany.


    The music and lyrical content varies through the album, providing positive inspiration, encouraging fans to create a pro-active and optimistic impact on society and life. Rachmany continues, "A lot of what we hear every day is that money measures success This new album is a reminder to spread love and positivity to the people around us, these are the true measures of success."


    Originally formed in Santa Barbara, CA in 2004, Rebelution's strong do-it-yourself mentality, relentless touring and deep connection to their fan base via social media, has led them to being one of the best-selling reggae artists on the planet.


    Since the 2007 release of Courage to Grow, the band's first full-length album, Rebelution's music has been praised for its crafty melodies, socially-conscious lyrics and savvy musicianship. In 2009, Rebelution continued to blaze their path delivering a second record, 2009's Bright Side of Life and then a triple disc release with Peace Of Mind in January of 2012; A record that debuted at #1 on Billboard's Reggae and Independent charts, and at #13 on the Top 200 Albums chart.

    Peace Of Mind (Acoustic)

    In early-2012, the Santa Barbara, CA-based band Rebelution released Peace of Mind through their own label 87 Music in partnership with Controlled Substance Sound Labs. Peace of Mind was released as a multi-length triple album which included the original Peace Of Mind album along with the Peace of Mind: Acoustic and Peace of Mind: Dub versions.


    Marking the highest chart debut of Rebelution's career, Peace of Mind debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 Reggae and #1 Independent albums as well as #4 on the iTunes overall album chart. The band previously had four top 10 albums on the Reggae chart and their 2009 release Bright Side of Life debuted at #54 on the Top 200 and #1 Reggae.


    Peace of Mind marks the first time Rebelution has expanded beyond their usual self-production enlisting producers Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star All-Stars), Amp Live (Zion-I), Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, George Clinton), Keith Armstrong and Errol Brown (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, Bob Marley). The album builds upon the band's signature style while venturing into new musical genres from the lush strings incorporated into the gentle "Route Around" to the driving guitar and synths throughout "Lady In White."


    Rebelution has developed into a front-runner for grassroots, independent and tour driven music groups. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric Rachmany (vocals/ guitar), Rory Carey (keyboards), Wesley Finley (drums), and Marley D. Williams (bass) met in college, while residing in Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution's future were planted creating inspiring and engaging music that would leave their listeners with the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place.


    Each of the three versions of Peace Of Mind are now being offered individually on vinyl pressings with a digital download card. Here you have the dynamic 12-track acoustic version of the critically acclaimed masterpiece.

    Marking the highest chart debut of Rebelution's career, Peace of Mind debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 Reggae and #1 Independent albums as well as #4 on the iTunes overall album chart. The band previously had four top 10 albums on the Reggae chart and their 2009 release Bright Side of Life debuted at #54 on the Top 200 and #1 Reggae.


    Peace of Mind marks the first time Rebelution has expanded beyond their usual self-production enlisting producers Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star All-Stars), Amp Live (Zion-I), Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, George Clinton), Keith Armstrong and Errol Brown (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, Bob Marley). The album builds upon the band's signature style while venturing into new musical genres from the lush strings incorporated into the gentle "Route Around" to the driving guitar and synths throughout "Lady In White."


    Rebelution has developed into a front-runner for grassroots, independent and tour driven music groups. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric Rachmany (vocals/ guitar), Rory Carey (keyboards), Wesley Finley (drums), and Marley D. Williams (bass) met in college, while residing in Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution's future were planted creating inspiring and engaging music that would leave their listeners with the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place.


    Each of the three versions of Peace Of Mind are now being offered individually on vinyl pressings with a digital download card. Here you have the original 12-track version of the critically acclaimed masterpiece. Includes guest appearances by the likes of Lutan Fyah, Jacob Hemphill of SOJA, John Popper and Zumbi of Zion I.

    The Bright Mississippi

    Through his work as producer, composer, arranger and consummate session man, New Orleans native Allen Toussaint has truly earned living-legend status. He has collaborated on landmark recordings for such artists as Ernie K. Doe, Lee Dorsey, Dr. John, the Meters, the Pointer Sisters and Labelle and released acclaimed albums of his own. The 70 year-old pianist, already a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, was the recipient, on the recent Grammy Awards telecast, of the Recording Academy's prestigious Trustee Award, honoring a lifetime in the studio, both behind the scenes and in front of the mic.


    On The Bright Mississippi, his Nonesuch debut, Toussaint continues to break new ground with his first jazz-oriented set, displaying the same effortless swing and relaxed charm he brought to his classic rock and roll sides. He salutes Big Easy stars of a previous generation, the jazz greats who, in the early 20th century, built the genre from the ground up and turned the ears of the world to New Orleans. Backed by an all-star combo that sounds like a group of old friends, Toussaint reinterprets classic jazz and blues tunes popularized or written by such New Orleans greats as Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton and Joe King Oliver, as well as pieces composed by fellow travelers Django Reinhardt, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk. He accedes the producers chair to trusted friend Joe Henry, who sat behind the board for Toussaint's contributions to Our New Orleans, Nonesuch Records best-selling 2005 benefit release aiding hurricane victims on the Gulf Coast. Henry also produced The River In Reverse, Toussaint's 2006 post-Katrina collaboration with Elvis Costello.


    Henry assembled a decidedly non-traditional band of backing players for The Bright Mississippi, assuring a fresh take on such venerable tunes as West End Blues, St. James Infirmary, and Dear Old Southland. Joining Toussaint for four days of sessions at Manhattans Avatar Studio were guitarist Marc Ribot (Costello, Tom Waits), bassist David Piltch (k.d. lang), clarinetist Don Byron, trumpeter Nicholas Payton and drummer Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant /Alison Krauss, Sam Phillips). Nonesuch label-mates Brad Mehldau (piano) and Joshua Redman (saxophone) stopped by for one tune each.It was wonderful, says Toussaint of these convivial sessions.


    Everything is live, of course. This isn't the kind of assembly line music where somebody put the wheels on here and somebody put the top on there. Everything got done at the same time, so everybody fed on each other, their personality and tonality.

    LaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith (Speakers Corner)

    It was 1958 when a passably successful R&B singer entered the recording studio with an all-star band to tape a dozen songs from the global repertoire of a legendary blues vocalist. The old-fashioned style in LaVern Baker's tribute to Bessie Smith might seem somewhat strange in the midst of popular R&B numbers and the growing productivity of the Motown hit machines, but it certainly found favour with the public. And for a very good reason too! Right from the very first number, Gimme A Pigfoot, the snappy bass line conjures up the ballroom atmosphere of the Twenties. A bluesy dialogue with the trumpet (Baby Doll, I Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle), alternating with robustly orchestrated swing rhythms (On Revival Day), and time and again cool, faltering blues (Black Water Blues) guarantee great listening and entertainment. The great names in the band read like a Who Is Who of outstanding musicians - Nat Pierce, Buck Clayton, Paul Quinichette, Urbie Green and Jimmy Cleveland, all who crown the fantastic sound of their performance with relaxed and easy-going solos and finely balanced background playing that would hardly be more authentic on a live stage. And by the way, fans of traditional big-band swing will love this album too.


    This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the master tapes through to the cutting head. All royalties and mechanical rights have been paid.

    About Speakers Corner


    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Cho Dependent

    Critically acclaimed comedian Margaret Cho is set to release an album of comedy songs on her own Clownery
    Records this August. I want to create a new genre of music that is hilarious but also seriously good, so I turned to
    some of my music heroes to help me out, says Margaret in reference to her forthcoming album Cho Dependent. I
    have wanted to make an album like this forever. I love comedy music!


    The lyrics on Cho Dependent, which tackle issues of sex, drugs, rock & roll (and lice), may be laugh-inducing, but
    Cho has made no compromises when it comes to the quality of the songwriting and production. Aer My Puss,
    a hilarious rap parody Cho recorded impromptu-style with friends, became a surprise YouTube hit, Cho began to
    integrate more comedy music into her live stand-up shows. With Cho Dependent, her first comedy music album, Cho
    got a chance to hone her cra with some of the top names in the business.


    Over the years of being an intense music geek I got to meet a lot of my heroes and I tricked them all into writing
    songs with me, explains Cho. Most comics want to be rock stars, and most rock stars want to be comics, so it was an
    easy exchange.


    There are so many amazing people I got to work with on this album, Cho continues, Jon Brion, Fiona Apple,
    Tegan and Sara, Andrew Bird, Ani DiFranco, Garrison Starr, Meghan Toohey, Brendan Benson,
    Rachael Yamagata, Carl Newman, Grant Lee Phillips, Patty Griffin, Ben Lee, Kevin Barnes $ I still have to
    pinch myself!

    Epitaph

    Ever since forming 16 years ago, Irish trio God Is An Astronaut has reigned as one of the premier instrumental groups. With its fusion of intense rock instrumentation, ethereal and emotional soundscapes, awe-inspiring dynamics and transfixing melodies.


    Each of their prior releases has offered a breath taking sonic journey, and their ninth emotive opus, Epitaph, is a record that both sees a progression in their sound while still remaining true to their ethos that helped define the band. The cover artwork was painted by French artist Fursy Teyssier and fits the melancholic mood beautifully. Joined by long-time drummer Lloyd Hanney, contributions also come from Xenon Field on sound design and former member Jamie Dean on keys.


    The opening title track 'Epitaph' sets the album`s mood. There is pain and loss at work here, but not pain and loss that are given in to. Sparse piano motifs face energetic rhythms, shimmering guitar coatings, and eruptions of dense fury breathe life into a journey of melancholic longing: there is the release experienced when a troubled existence ends in 'Mortal Coil' followed by the somber foreshadowing that is 'Winter Dusk/Awakening'.


    The album changes direction slightly with 'Seánce Room' and the music on this highway is taking you someplace meaningful and special - someplace where near and far blur and stars weep over tragedies.


    'Komorebi' is a word from Japanese. Think of the interplay between light and leaves when sunlight shines through trees.The song has a melancholic longing or nostalgia for a person, place or thing that is far away from you or about to slip away.


    'Medea' references Greek mythology, and the enchantress who married Jason, leader of the Argonauts, only to be later guilty of filicide, a crime so against the natural order of things that you can imagine the stars in the sky weeping. It is not easy to confront such things, but this record and this band don't shirk the challenge.


    Finally, the beautiful and hypnotic piece of music that is the album-closing 'Oisín' is in memory of Torsten and Niels' 7-year-old cousin who was tragically taken from this world. It distills into four minutes all the pain, sadness and longing felt by many over a much longer timeframe. A fitting end to an album that will move you deeply and call out to you to be revisited many times.

    Dejah Voodoo

    Robert Plant once called them his "favorite band", and it is easy to see why. Led by a 300lb. Elvis impersonator and a guy in tight black underwear and a cape, Dread Zeppelin, by means of unholy divination, have managed to climb through that small tear in the universe where the stars of Bob Marley, Elvis Presley and Led Zeppelin have aligned. For the first time on vinyl, Dejah Voodoo, recorded in 2000 and featuring one bonus track, is an album full of mind-boggling Zep covers from the other side of the sun.

    The 2nd Law

    Muse didn't set out to make the most gloriously ambitious album of their career. How could they have? The band who dreamt up Supermassive Black Hole, Knights Of Cydonia and the three-part Exogenesis symphony were already well-versed in going One Louder. Any wilder, any further out there, and Muse would risk incineration by a dwarf star of their own making.


    But you don't become one of the biggest bands on this planet - in excess of 15 million albums sales worldwide, 5 MTV Europe Awards, 2 Brit Awards, 8 NME Awards, 5 Q Awards, 4 Kerrang Awards and winner of the Best Rock Album Grammy 2011; No 1 in 19 countries with 2009's The Resistance; filler of arena and stadia across the world - by sitting on your hands.


    So when Muse approached the making of their sixth studio album, they wouldn't stint on the choirs, strings and horn sections. And be reassured: guitar-shredding, piano-thumping, orchestra-arranging, book-chewing, big-thinking Matt Bellamy, as the band's chief songwriter, didn't lower his sights from The Big Picture nor ignore The Precious Details. And nor were the trio afraid of giving space to a brilliant new element to their sound - songs written and sung by bass player Chris Wolstenholme.


    But what the Devon-born band of schoolfriends did do different was this: they made things easy for themselves. For the first time since the dawn of their career in smalltown England 18 years ago, all three members were living in the same place during the making of an album. Domiciled in and around London, they block-booked a recording studio - Air - and came and went as they pleased.


    This time, the only clock Muse had to beat was their own internal band rhythm. They had the days and weeks and space to experiment, explore ideas, rig up massive in-studio PA systems, hire in remixers, play with pedals, and (technical term alert!) fanny around to their hearts' content.
